An Elegant Neckline

If you're unhappy with the appearance of your neck, you're not alone. The neck is a common area where fat can accumulate, leading to a double chin or a less defined jawline. While exercise and diets can help, they may not always effectively reduce the appearance of a double chin. To help you achieve the sculpted neckline you desire, the Vinyard Institute of Plastic Surgery offers neck liposuction.

What Is Neck Liposuction?

Neck liposuction, or submental liposuction, is a cosmetic procedure that sculpts the neck area by removing excess fat deposits, enhancing the jawline, and creating a smoother, more youthful appearance. This minimally invasive technique effectively addresses submental fullness, commonly called a "double chin," providing a more defined, slim jawline and neck. This cosmetic procedure can also boost confidence, helping you feel more comfortable in your own skin.

Who Is a Candidate?

Ideal candidates for neck liposuction are individuals frustrated by the presence of stubborn fat beneath the chin despite maintaining a healthy lifestyle. If you desire a more defined jawline and neck without undergoing more extensive surgical procedures, neck liposuction might be your solution. Neck liposuction isn't a weight loss method; it is best for those close to their desired weight but struggling with resistant fat deposits despite exercise and diet efforts.

What Is the Technique?

As an outpatient procedure, neck liposuction involves making small incisions in the skin to insert a thin, hollow tube called a cannula. The cannula is connected to a vacuum pump to gently suction out excess fat from your neck. Our skilled cosmetic surgeon, Dr. William Vinyard, uses his artistic precision to create a sculpted and balanced neckline, enhancing your natural features.

What to Expect

You will be under local anesthesia or light sedation during the procedure, ensuring your comfort throughout. The process usually lasts between one to two hours, varying with the amount of fat removed. Afterward, wearing a compression garment around your neck is essential to minimize swelling and encourage healing. You may experience some discomfort, bruising, and swelling in the days following the procedure, but these symptoms should subside within a week or two.  

You should avoid strenuous activity for several weeks following the surgery, and you may need to take some time off work to allow your body to heal. Dr. Vinyard will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions, including how to care for your incisions and when to schedule follow-up appointments. Most patients can resume their everyday activities within a week, and as the swelling diminishes, the refined results emerge, showcasing a sleek and graceful neckline.

What is the cost of neck liposuction?

When considering neck liposuction, it is vital to prioritize the expertise of a skilled surgeon like Dr. Vinyard, ensuring your desired outcomes over cost. The expense of neck liposuction hinges on factors such as technique, facility charges, anesthesia, etc. A tailored treatment plan and cost estimate will be provided after your consultation. Dr. Vinyard can also guide you on payment options, including affordable financing, to facilitate a smoother surgical journey.

Is neck liposuction a surgical procedure?

Yes, neck liposuction is a surgical procedure. However, it is minimally invasive, involving tiny incisions and specialized instruments to remove excess fat. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia or light sedation so that you will be comfortable throughout.

Are there non-surgical alternatives to neck liposuction?

Yes, non-surgical alternatives, such as Kybella and CoolSculpting, can reduce submental fat. However, these options may require multiple sessions and may not achieve the same level of precision as surgical neck liposuction. During your consultation, we will discuss the best approach based on your goals and preferences.

How long do the results of neck liposuction last?

The results of neck liposuction are long-lasting, provided you maintain a healthy lifestyle. Once excess fat cells are removed, they do not return. However, the natural aging process and lifestyle factors can still affect your appearance over time. Dr. Vinyard's expert guidance during your consultation will help you understand what to expect and how to maintain your rejuvenated neck contours.
